The museum opened its doors to the public this month and those doors were beautifully finished with Scott Beaven ironmongery. Scott Beaven were engaged on this iconic project in July 2010 by the architects Wilkinson Eyre having worked with them on numerous award winning projects over the years. 

The ironmongery brief was for high quality, stylish and durable ironmongery at an affordable price – all hallmarks of Scott Beaven Radius Ltd. Door closers were Dorma cam action.  Lockcases were also Dorma. The door furniture was Scott Beavens UK manufactured 25 year guarantee Radius range with the client opting for flat levers handles on square slimline roses with flat pull handles to match.

Working closely with the contractor Kier Southern and Wilkinson Eyre throughout, the project was delivered on time and to a high standard much to the local councils approval.

Mike Harris, Senior Manager for Leisure and Culture at Southampton City Council, said: "The opening is a proud moment for Southampton. A huge amount of time and effort has gone into every stage of the museum's creation, and to have finally reached the point where we can open the doors to visitors is a great achievement.’"
